early 2000s – to set up Rocsearch, an Analytics firm. I then joined KPMG, and
as Partner, helped build their global shared services out of India. My final
stop, before joining Epsilon, was as MD of AIG where I pieced together their
data analytics capabilities.
I am the co-author of Riding

and contains business strategies for tapping into the world’s fastest-growing
